The town will be rebuilt on its old foundations; the mansions will be splendid again. 
Thanksgiving will pour out of the windows; laughter will spill through the doors.

  • Often when we hear those words it is usually used disparagingly in that we are unable to do it, we can’t get it done and we have failed.  Well, when it comes to making yourself approved before God that is exactly right.  I have a fun moment at our latest BYOB (bring your own Bible…lol) and I was teaching on Romans 3.

  • It’s not an easy place to walk into.  The atmosphere is heavy, the lighting is dim, and as fully clothed woman, we are naturally out of place.  Out of place with the patrons and the girls who are working.  They can’t figure out why we are there, and I’ll be honest, sometimes neither can I!

    It is a place of...

    Everyone Has A Story!

    March 22, 2019

    Well the story of the Orange Crush hockey team that I captained in 2018-2019 wasn't a pretty one.  The official website credited us one more victory than we actually had lol.  We had 5 wins and 13 losses and a goal differential of -32.  We didn't like to play defense. However, having said that, the guys I bonded with on this team...

    Being Driven vs Being Led

    February 28, 2019

    Are you more of a person who is driven…driven to succeed, driven to perform, driven to make things happen or are you the type of person who is led… led by your instincts, led to find your sweet spot, being in the right place at the right time?  It is often more easy to recognize a driven person because of how they get things...

    The One Unplanned Pregnancy That Saved Us!

    December 18, 2018

    I was really struck by this post and it reminded me just how scandalous the birth of Jesus would appear from a human perspective.  This was the viewpoint apart from heaven coming to earth. It was the unplanned pregnancy that saved us!  This is the birth that brought us to the place of full salvation. 


    However, from God's...

    Spy Games!

    October 28, 2018

    So, last night I was at a fundraiser event and the person who was hosting my table looks at me and says, “I’ve been creeping you on Facebook”. I laughed and then he shared I noticed that you went to Prairie Bible College and so began a conversation that led us to discovering our mutual friends, old teachers etc… ...

    How's Your Serve?

    September 11, 2018

    I’ll never forget the time Sharon and I were on staff at a camp all summer as the program directors and getting challenged to give at the end of our ministry there.   One of the board of directors stood up and spoke to us from Malachi 3:10 and challenged us not to rob God with our tithes and offerings.  I was thinking to...

    Pursuing Freedom In Love

    September 3, 2018

    Sharon and I had the opportunity to connect with a couple who were dealing with an evil presence in their home this past week.  As we prayed, the Spirit brought to Sharon’s attention the parable of the house swept clean in Luke 11;25; Matthew 12:44  It is about a man who experienced freedom from demon oppression only to find...
